people consuming this in that controlled news environment, we're not saying that if you're buying the putin view of this, you know, that that's just -- you're just being dumb. i mean, there's a lot of ways in which he presents this that can sound reasonable if you hear nothing else. >> absolutely. and this has been one of the most amazing things of the putin project since he's come to power. he's created this kind of alternate reality. at first he did it domestically. when you're in russia, it's incredibly. the talk of democracy, the posters on the streets, the people out at also ryes, the lines at election booths. these are things that the kremlin orchestrates very, very carefully. this is the first time he's moved beyond his borders to do it there. so this is a very controlled campaign. it's a theatre. >> james welcome back to the show. thanks for joining us again. >>> coming up, vladimir putin's political machine. and later, breaking news from texas. wendy davis has become the first woman since anne richards to win a primary for governor of texas.

himself. in any other environment. the only thing that's protecting him right now is this giant board of other -- with other names on the scandal sheet. so it's hard to spend enough time just on what a scandal samson is. >> and this is a question that's been raised in this whole process. when david wildstein's lawyer trying to get his bills paid. he also alluded to conflicts of interest between port authority commissioners. it's very unclear what he's saying but it seems he might be hinting at more about david samson. we've seen several conflicts come about david samson. a paz station in harrison. we' seen multiple examples. >> every breath samson takes at the port authority takes is a conflict of interest and christie knew that would be the case. he knew what his real job was. "up with steve kernacki." coming up, the republicans and ted cruz and the battle that never ends between them. and joy reid joins me to talk about the president's new initiative, my brother's keeper and the extraordinary comments the president made at the white house made today. and bill o'reilly will tell us w

learning environments for our kids. and as part of this effort, we'll be eliminating advertisements for unhealthy food and beverages in our schools. because i think we can all agree that our classrooms should be healthy place where is kids are no, ma'am bombarded for ads for junk food. our second announcement focuses on school breakfast. i cannot possibly overstate how important this is. right now millions of children in this country are showing up to school hungry every day. and that's why we're expanding our school breakfast program, ensuring that nearly 9 million kids in 2,000 schools start their day with a nutritious breakfast. >> joining me now, chef and owner of kraft restaurants. tom, we have come such a long way, when you consider what michelle obama has been campaigning for. >> pretty much dent kept at bay now for other children. the message is definitely getting across. the importance of school breakfasts, it really gets them learning. there was a study done recently that kids that get breakfast, not before the bell, but after the bell in school, math scores go up by 17%.
